This morning the finalists for The Story Prize, for books published in 2017, were announced.

  • The King Is Always above the People, by Daniel Alarcón
  • Homesick for the Another World, by Ottessa Moshfegh
  • Anything Is Possible, by Elizabeth Strout

All of these are familiar names here at The Mookse and the Gripes, though I haven’t read any of these particular collections.

Do any of you plan to read the three collections? If so, please let us know your thoughts and which one you’d choose!

Larry Dark and Julie Lindsey selected the three finalists. Three independent judges will choose the winner. The judges are Susan Minot, Walton Muyumba, and Stephanie Sendaula.
